Quote of the moment
January 9, 2006
From P.J. O’Rourke’s review of Ana Marie Cox’s Dog Days:
Creative writing teachers should be purged until every last instructor who has uttered the words "Write what you know" is confined to a labor camp. Please, talented scribblers, write what you don’t. The blind guy with the funny little harp who composed The Iliad , how much combat do you think he saw?
As always with O’Rourke, much of the rest is quite funny as well.
